GUARANTEED TUITION OPTION (GTO)
Students may choose to participate in the Guaranteed Tuition Option (GTO) which locks in an hourly tuition rate for eight semesters. Students must be continually enrolled with full-time status to maintain the guarantee. Initially, students will pay a higher rate, but the tuition will stay the same for eight semesters. You may opt out of the GTO at any time and pay the current hourly tuition rate. However, once you opt out, you may not return to your initial guaranteed amount. The rate for the Fall 2013 semester is $780 per semester hour, you can select the GTO at time of registration.
ETBU awarded over $9 million in financial aid this year and over 90% of our students receive financial aid. This makes your out of pocket expense much lower than the above amount. ETBU strives to provide an affordable, quality education.
ETBU offers a payment plan that allows the semester charges to be divided into five payments. A administration fee will be assessed to the first payment each semester. The first payment for the fall semester is due July 31 and the first payment for the spring semester it is due December 31.
